Norway To Make Laws Stricter, Not Looser Like in Canada - Shame on Shea

Things have gotten so bad where fish farms have come from, Norway, that citizens, news and even politicians are calling for tighter laws against the environmental damage causedby fish farms.

Read the translated article: https://translate.google.com/translate?depth=1&hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.ca&sl=no&tl=en&u=http://fiskeribladetfiskaren.no/nyheter/%3Fartikkel%3D39717.

Storms have broken apart farms and released more than 100,000 farmed fish, including Canadian Steelehad. Locals are trying desperately to prevent the steelhead from spawning in Atlantic salmon rivers.

"We do not need more such blunders. It is also appropriate to strengthen legislation so that both public authorities and the industry gets involved far earlier than was the case after Nina."

And " Fisheries out with a list of where fishermen could return the fish, and on top of this dissuaded authorities to eat one portion of fish due to sea lice treatment it had conducted. 
All this has created a problematic image of the industry, "

Locals are not to eat the fish due to the sea lice toxic chemicals in the farmed fish.

"The companies must be held responsible more and rules by recapture must be the same for large and small. The rules on the polluter-pays must also apply in this industry. Public opinion expects quick action, which we believe most in the industry also recognizes the need."

So lice, escapes, chemicals, pollution. All items for stiffer laws in Norway. Why is Gail Shea bringing weaker laws in Canada - for the same companies that operate in Norway.
